Leading technology provider in the UK, Softcat, have presented their view on why the C-suite and IT need to work together when it comes to cyber security. Published via Softcat's dynamic new IT thought leadership platform, Fluent, the article gives a new perspective on the subject.
For the most part, similar cyber security articles focus on the issue from the point of view of the cyber security team. Softcat are eager to show that in doing so half the story is being ignored. With that in mind, the point of this article, written by Adam Louca, Chief Technologist Security, is to positively change the focus.
Louca points out, “I think it's time to change the way we speak about cyber security”. He goes on to say, “Boards are informed they need to continue investing in the next whizbang solution, be scared of the latest attack vector, or face the rath of a nation state threat actor. What about if we imagine we are no longer IT professionals but have transitioned into the role of a member of the leadership team?”
The article continues by asking what it would look like to have a more balanced communication and how it might shift the way the C-suite responds – ultimately improving the business as a whole.
